Vintage Japanese Lacquer Ware Woven Bamboo Tea Ceremony Tray
The tray measures 12 inches across and sits 1 inch high. It is in near mint condition. I really cannot find any condition issue to note. It is probably early-mid 20th century but could be earlier.
This lovely Tray was exceptionally crafted in skill and artistic sensibility. It is a fine example of the traditional art of Japanese lacquer ware and its preservation is remarkable. A stunning collector's item!
History: A number of terms are used in Japanese to refer to lacquer ware. Shikki (漆器) means "lacquer ware" in the most literal sense, while nurimono (塗物) means "coated things", and urushi-nuri (漆塗) means "lacquer coating." The sap of the lacquer tree, today bearing the technical description of "urushiol-based lacquer," has traditionally been used in Japan. As the substance is poisonous to the touch until it dries, the creation of lacquer ware has long been practiced only by skilled dedicated artisans.
